this week’s goal(s):
- 6.10C. identify the major tectonic plates, including Eurasian, African, Indo-Australian, Pacific, North American, and South American
- 6.10D. describe how plate tectonics causes major geological events such as ocean basins, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building
Monday: Which of the following geologic events would most likely occur where two continental plates converge? Tsunami or Earthquake or Mountain formation or Trench formation
Tuesday: Solve this riddle of identifying the correct Plate, While I am mostly crust under the ocean, I have a small piece of continental crust and can cause a lot of moving and shaking in California. I am found between 150 degrees E longitude and 120 degrees W longitude.
Wednesday: At which type of plate boundary will a trench most likely form?
in class on…
Monday, students were given time to work on their GKWs and identifying the plates on their tectonic plates map. These two will be their next quiz that’ll be on Friday, 20th. Both are on my Google Classroom.
Tuesday and Wednesday, students learned to describe how plate tectonics causes major geological events such as ocean basins, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building. They learned about this information through this presentation, Plate Tectonics: Plates on the Move. Students drew in their notebook, drawings of plate movements & geological events/features.
Thursday, prepared for their DCA, layers and structures of Earth, that’ll be tomorrow.
Monday: complete the Plate Tectonics map and GKWs for Friday’s quiz
